T.G. Sheppard is getting another curtain call at the Carson Valley Inn.
The country music singer with 21 No. 1 songs will return to the Valley Ballroom on Saturday, Nov. 12, for an acoustic performance with Kelly Lang.
Tickets, which are $25, went on sale today. Sheppard’s March 2014 Valley Ballroom appearance sold out in advance. Sheppard also appeared at the CVI in August 2015 in a show at TJ’s Corral along with Mo Brandy.
Tickets can be purchased at the hotel desk or by calling 775-783-6606.
Some of Sheppard’s greatest hits include “Devil in the Bottle,” “War is Hell (On the Homefront Too),” “Last Cheater’s Waltz,” “I’ll Be Coming Back for More,” “Party Time,” “Slow Burn,” and “Do You Want to Go to Heaven.” He transcended the country realm and reached the Top 40 pop charts with “I Loved ‘Em Every One.”
While Sheppard’s heyday of hits was in the 1980s, he’s been busy recording and performing lately in duets. His first popular duet was with Judy Collins in 1984, “Home Again.” His first commercial album release in 13 years, “Legendary Friends & Country Duets,” paired him with the biggest stars in the business, including Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, the Oak Ridge Boys, Steve Cropper, George Jones, Jerry Lee Lewis and Conway Twitty.
The follow-up, “Iconic Duets,” is a collaboration with his wife Lang, with whom he will appear in the Valley Ballroom.
Sheppard was born in Humboldt, Tennessee, named after the Prussian explorer Alexander Von Humboldt, also the namesake for Humboldt counties in Nevada and California. After started his career in Memphis, he settled down in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
